Abstract

Japan's financial contributing power explains its key role in the ADB and its interest in the Bank as a symbol of its status in the world. However, even though Japan has become more powerful in the ADB since 1972, it has also become less concerned about its tangible and immediate economic gains from the Bank. This is because Japan's participation in the ADB has broadened its definition of interests due to a close institutional linkage between the ADB and the Ministry of Finance. This linkage has made Japanese officials identify their interests with those of the ADB. The paper shows that the existence of a strong domestic agency with an entrenched institutional connection with an international institution facilitates cooperation from a non-hegemon state in the institution.
